This is the speci cation for the Trading Agent Competition { Supply Chain Management Game for 2006 (TAC SCM-06). Agents are simulations of small manufacturers, who must compete with each other for both supplies and customers, and manage inventories and production facilities.

Based on the positive experience with the 2005 trading agent competition, the changes for 2006 are very minor. They include a con gurable ability to learn the identities of competing agents, a slight modi cation in the handling of agent-supplier reputation, and some clari cations in the text.
